What is Taurine from Life Pro?
Taurine from Life Pro is a supplement based on taurine, a non-essential amino acid, which is part of our body, and is the second most abundant in free form in muscle tissue after glutamine.
Non-essential amino acids are those that our body produces naturally, without the need to be ingested through diet or food. However, over the years the amounts produced decrease.
Adequate supplementation with taurine can provide multiple benefits, as well as contribute to maintaining adequate levels.
It is involved in a large number of physiological processes such as the production of bile salts, immune system and anti-oxidation, regulation of liquids and allows the supply of energy during physical activity.
Taurine is present in all those organs in which there is a high nervous activity, such as the brain, muscles, heart, etc.
Although it is an amino acid that is often found together with caffeine in stimulant drinks, it does not have stimulating effects, although it contributes to an improvement in energy levels and performance.
Where does taurine come from?
Taurine is an amino acid that is synthesized from methionine and cysteine together with vitamin B6, two other amino acids.
It is found freely within the cellular fluid.
Taurine can be obtained from food. It is abundantly found in foods with a high protein content, especially of animal origin, such as meat: chicken, lamb, beef, etc. and fish such as mackerel, and of vegetable origin in legumes and nuts, such as chickpeas, lentils, hazelnuts...

- Taurine stimulates the immune system by contributing to the production of antibodies.
- It is used to carry out various antioxidant functions.
- It exerts a cardioprotective effect and contributes to the performance of the nervous system.
- It promotes proper digestion as it intervenes in the segregation of bile salts.
- It has associated antidepressant and anxiolytic properties in relation to the production of Gaba.
- It favors the absorption of micronutrients.
- Contributes to the maintenance of fluid balance and regulation of certain minerals and helps the absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins.
- In sports performance and physical activity:
- Intervenes in nerve impulse and acts as a muscle protector.
- It facilitates the entry of nutrients, such as carbohydrates and proteins, into the cells.
- It helps to increase and replenish glycogen levels and therefore to reduce insulin in the blood.
- Taurine increases the contraction capacity of the muscles, which results in prolonged work for longer periods of time and in maintaining the level of strength.
- It has positive effects in the reduction of stiffness, muscle pain and fatigue.
